Spain is What You Want!
In India it’s the Sitar, in Greece it’s the Bouzouki, in Russia it’s the Balalaika, and in Spain the signature instrument of traditional national music is the Flamenco Guitar. Not only is Flamenco the name of the instrument, but it is also the vibrant strumming style of music being played, and very importantly the flashy and artistic style of traditional dancing to which it accompanies.
Flamenco is performed at its very finest in the capital of southern Spain’s Andalusia region, Seville, at Flamenco El Patio Sevillano where you can enjoy a full evening of authentic music, dancing and merriment whilst sampling the region’s fine wines.
Trip Out to the Balearic Islands
Spain is host nation to many island groups and archipelagos both in close proximity to the mainland and some hundreds of miles away. The closest and most popular are located in the Balearic Sea and comprise the three much loved islands of Majorca, Minorca and Ibiza, each easily accessible by ferry.
Certainly one of their main attractions is the spectacular weather they all exhibit with long hot days of sunbathing on golden sand beaches and swimming in crystal clear turquoise waters almost all year round. And when the sun dips below the rose tinted horizon, each Balearic island bursts into life with music, dance, dining, and the dazzling lights of a vibrant nightlife.
Brave an International Zip Line
Here’s one for the wannabe Spiderman or hyper thrill seeker! Imagine ‘zipping’ (literally) across an international border separating two nations at 50 miles per hour and actually engaging in true time travel!
It is possible, and Límite Zero is the only place in the world to achieve it! You ‘fly’ from Spain across to neighboring Portugal on a 240 foot long zip line crossing the mighty River Guadiana and taking in rapidly changing aerial views of olive groves and spectacular surroundings on your journey.
And regarding the time travel. Well because of the time difference between the two nations, you actually arrive in Portugal a full hour before you left from Spain a few moments ago!
